I’m a big believer in second chances with MMORPGs, because so many of my personal favorites weren’t favorites right out of the game. In fact, some of them I downright disliked because they didn’t click with me instantly or they were in a sad state at launch.
So I feel it’s always a good idea to come back to a game that gave you a poor first impression and see if it’s worth another evaluation. Right now, I’m giving New World a little bit of breathing time to settle down from all of the post-launch insanity before returning. I felt that four or five months allows for enough space to come back fresh for a second look.
How long do you wait to give an MMO a second chance — if it gets one from you at all?
